I am so honored!
About a month or so ago,Karin at Lovin' Life at the End of a The Dirt Road told me she was getting chickens. I shared how much I'd like a coop of my own, but I have a homeowner's association that frowns on backyard fowl. Karin said I could live vicariously through her flock and she was going to name the sweetest chicken after me. Oh my goodness - what an honor! I told her that my son suggested that she should name the orneriest chicken after me - and I understand his thinking. I can be quite a pain in the butt. But is it my fault that I know exactly what he should be doing??? As I have told some people, do it my way and at least one of us will be happy. Yeah, that doesn't always go over too well.
Please stop over at Karin's blog and read the wonderful story of her chickens - it will make you happy and make you sad and then make you happy again! Thank you Karin -- I am so honored!
Now if you've stopped by here the last week or so you have seen a noticeable lack of new content. Sorry about that but I've been up to my eyeballs in projects to help my son move into his first house. I've made hundreds of trips (okay that's a slight exaggeration) to furniture stores, IKEA, hardware stores, Walmart, JC Penneys and Kohls. He is starting from scratch and HATES to shop so he's given me his checkbook and told me to take care of it. It has been fun shopping for everything from curtains to dishes but after I've deposited them at his new house they always seem to need extra attention - from washing the dishes to hanging the drapes. I will say the place is taking shape nicely. He has this week off (although he went into work this morning for a couple of hours - the boy is a workaholic) and together he and I painted the walls in his bedroom. I love the blue he picked out - click here - Stratford Blue by Benjamin Moore. Tomorrow we have plans to paint woodwork and doors and assemble some of the IKEA furniture that was delivered today. I'm hoping that we can get him moved in by the end of the week and that I can get back to my sewing room.
But for now I'm going to take 2 Advil and go to bed. I know I climbed up and down that ladder at least a million times today (and no that isn't an exaggeration). LOL!
